I'm glad I attended this performance/history lesson about Alexander Graham Bell. I was expecting some reference to Done Ameche, who played Bell in a 19302 movie and who many thought was Bell, I also was kept waiting for come reference to the...continued

Rick is amazing as Bell! It's a disarming script with some inspired insights into our present!

Very well done 1-man show. Bell is presented as a far more interesting character than simply the inventor of the phone...and he lets you know that frequently. This was Nat'l Geo's first foray into theatre in their space and, while it has some...continued

My husband and I both were astonished at how good the writing, acting and staging were. The play held our attention throughout. Everyone knows Bell as inventor of the telephone, but there is so much more to learn about this interesting...continued

Good acting, a lot of wit and wisdom in the script but about 30 minutes too long, becoming repetitious. Were there no other aspects of Bell's character to bring in to make it more interesting?

It was outstanding, we really enjoyed it. Learned a lot about AGB and some of his contemporaries. Rick Foucheux was great as AGB and Jim Lehrer is always fab!

Superb writing delivered by an exceptional actor. And it's always a bonus to learn something. The hour and half went too quickly.

The play was interesting, but lacking in drama. It was basically like listening to an autobiography of Alexander Graham Bell.

Loved the free parking in the National Geo building! A big plus for attending an event in DC. Rick Foucheux is always good. We enjoyed his performance, as well as the staging.
